Revealed: how the FBI coordinated the crackdown on Occupy
by Naomi Wolf
December 29, 2012
New documents prove what was once dismissed as paranoid fantasy: totally integrated corporate-state repression of dissent
It was more sophisticated than we had imagined: new documents show that the violent crackdown on Occupy last fall – so mystifying at the time – was not just coordinated at the level of the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security, and local police. The crackdown, which involved, as you may recall, violent arrests, group disruption, canister missiles to the skulls of protesters, people held in handcuffs so tight they were injured, people held in bondage till they were forced to wet or soil themselves –was coordinated with the big banks themselves...

Reagan's Personal Spying Machine
By Seth Rosenfeld, The New York Times, 02 September 12
In 1961, when Ronald Reagan was defining himself politically, he warned that if left unchecked, government would become "a Big Brother to us all." But previously undisclosed F.B.I. records, released to me after a long and costly legal fight under the Freedom of Information Act, present a different side of the man who has come to symbolize the conservative philosophy of less government and greater self-reliance. When Reagan needed government help, he was happy to take it, which is particularly interesting in light of the current debate over "entitlements," and which might give pause to members of both political parties who speak glowingly of the Reagan legacy.
The documents show that Reagan was more involved than was previously known as a government informer during his Hollywood years, and that in return he secretly received personal and political help from J. Edgar Hoover, the longtime F.B.I. director, at taxpayer expense.
Reagan's F.B.I. connection is rooted in the turbulent years of post-World War II Hollywood, a time when, Reagan has written, his worldview was coming apart. His film career, his marriage to Jane Wyman and his faith in the political wisdom received from his father, an F.D.R. Democrat, were all faltering.
The timing was thus significant when, one night in 1946, F.B.I. agents dropped by his house overlooking Sunset Boulevard and told him that Communists were infiltrating a liberal group he was involved in. He soon had a new purpose; as he wrote, "I must confess they opened my eyes to a good many things."
The newly released files flesh out what Reagan only hinted at. They show that he began to report secretly to the F.B.I. about people whom he suspected of Communist activity, some on the scantiest of evidence. And they reveal that during his tenure as president of the Screen Actors Guild in the '40s and '50s, F.B.I. agents had access to guild records on dozens of actors. As one F.B.I. official wrote in a memo, Reagan "in every instance has been cooperative." (...)

And the man who fired the first shot at the Kent State shootings was an FBI informant.
It was always the government that started the trouble.
The three-letter varieties in particular: ATF, CIA, FBI...
It would be interesting to know precisely how much the US has lost in lives and treasure solely to dealing with 3-letter agency boondoggles after their operatives have gone rogue.
(No, that doesn't include Sarah Palin. ;))

FBI quietly forms secretive Net-surveillance unit
by Declan McCullagh
May 22, 2012
The FBI has recently formed a secretive surveillance unit with an ambitious goal: to invent technology that will let police more readily eavesdrop on Internet and wireless communications.
The establishment of the Quantico, Va.-based unit, which is also staffed by agents from the U.S. Marshals Service and the Drug Enforcement Agency, is a response to technological developments that FBI officials believe outpace law enforcement's ability to listen in on private communications.
While the FBI has been tight-lipped about the creation of its Domestic Communications Assistance Center, or DCAC — it declined to respond to requests made two days ago about who's running it, for instance — CNET has pieced together information about its operations through interviews and a review of internal government documents...
